  • ADHD impacting life.

    I've read in many places that ADHD symptoms need to present in two or more settings. So does that mean, if I can't focus on my school work at school and I can't focus on my school at home, I'm experiencing ADHD in 2 settings? Or is it like, I can't finish school work at school and I misplace things at home. How would ADHD impact your life at home?

    Does is seem like my ADHD diagnosis was wrong?

    I've known many people with adhd and none of them seem to struggle as much as I do. I don't know how to keep friendships or make friendships. I'm just awkward I don't know what to say or how to act. I have no desire to fit into society but I still want to be loved. I don't know the symptoms of asburgers very well. I learn slower than others. By a great deal. I'm constantly told to grow up even though I don't know what exactly the person is getting at. As a kid I would....

  • Confused stressed worried about ADD

    Hello everybody, it's nice to meet everyone. I was told by my GP I was "highly likely" to have ADHD(focusing more on the inattentive, some but few hyperactivity) as a young adult. I just don't know about this whole process and everything.. I started taking ritalin 10mgx3 a day, which seems to be the standard starting medication. It worked for an hour but would wear off, and after telling my GP he gave me a generic of concerta, and concerta generics have a history of not working....

    Caveats for finally getting treatment for ADD as middle aged person?

    I was recently diagnosed with ADD, something I'm realizing I probably had my whole life. Are there any concerns, caveats I should be worried about with regard to taking medication for ADD as an adult? I guess my main concern is that I'll realize what I've been missing all along and want to be treated in perpetuity because I just feel more mentally capable. Opinions?

    Cup of coffee with Vyvanse??

    I used to take Concerta for my ADHD all the way through grade school and stopped after I graduated. Almost 3 years later I am back on medicine, but this time it is Vyvanse. I am a serious coffee enthusiast and enjoy a cup or two of the wonderful drink most days. On days when I do drink coffee while on the medicine, I seem tense and have a elevated heart rate. The medicine already increases your heart rate, but I don't know how much is from the medicine or how much is from combining both the medicine....
